8. Cover your walls with crap

David Bowie; my guardian angel. 
If I know anything, it is how to collage your walls. I love it. When ever I am super bored and lonely, I look through those random boxes in my closet that are filled with photos, letters and pieces of art (you know what I am talking about) and find wonderful things to tape above my bed. However, I do warn you, this can make your room look kind of crazy and very cluttered, but I am guessing that since you are a teenage girl like me, you could care less.

I spy with my little eye Jordan Catalano
When searching for these items make sure you only tape things on your walls that represent you. Trust me, whoever walks in your room will intently look at the things on your walls  AND JUDGE YOU. But ultimately, you should pick things out that YOU LIKE. AND THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY. 

Here are somethings that you might want to look for when you are re-decorating your walls:
-photos of your friends and family (especially pets...the majority of pictures on my wall are of my dog.)
The Bee Gees. JUDGE ME.
-posters of your idols. I recommend putting these above your bed so that they can act as your guardian angel. (i.e. David Bowie)
-magazine clippings of your favorite people, animals, or food.
-stickers! Lots and lots of stickers! I got some butterfly stickers from Ikea and plastered them all over my room.
-If you have a record collection, then look through all of the sleeves and see if there are posters inside. That is where I found my Bee Gees poster, Jim Morrison poster, Joan Jett poster, and one of my Bowie posters!

Here are some things that you might want to avoid:
-Cardboard cut outs. PLEASE DON'T GO OUT AND BUY A CARDBOARD CUT OUT. For one, they are like 40 bucks for a piece of cardboard that probably cost a dollar to make, plus, they are extremely terrifying when you walk into your room (after watching a horror movie) and you see the silhouette of Justin Bieber or Johnny Depp. Just trust me. You will regret it.
-Wrappers...believe it or not, I have walked into people's bedrooms and seen that they have taped candy wrappers on their walls. This sounds like a cool idea and all, but it is rare that this actually looks good. Don't take any chances please. Wrappers are meant for the garbage.


  1. i love your walls oh my god <3 very inspired now to spend my whole day doing this.

    1. Thanks so much! Yes totally do it! It will keep you entertained for awhile I promise haha :)

  2. Oh! I did this with my room, but I really liked how you left space; I've been trying to cover up my entire wall! But that's also because I'm sick of my dark blue-purple walls...

    Anyways, thanks for the idea! Keep blogging!!!!!!
